    Re: Here’s one for you.

    You are just redefining what constitutes a god, I don't buy it. You could argue it, but you won't convince me with that argument.

  2. Re: Installing W10 from Bootable USB drive. When is it ok to remove the USB?

    Re: Gene Editing

    There are probably any number of reasons, many of them unfounded I'm sure.
    There's:
    Mistrust of scientists in general (which seems way out of proportion to me in a lot of people)

    Re: HDMI Cables

    For cables under 1M in length it often doesn't matter much what type of cable, and then the longer the cable is the more it does matter. Some good quality cables from older standards still work with...

    Re: PCIE cable - single or double?

    If it's a decent PSU it should make no difference, and if it's a single rail design it definitely will make no difference.

    Re: No MB BIOS access

    When the hardware is that old I don't personally think it's worth trying to replace the motherboard if it does die on you. Just too hard to find and a high chance of it failing again.

    Re: 16 Gb RAM in which slots?

    When the system is booting there should be a message telling you if the memory is in dual channel mode, if it is then don't worry about it. If it says single channel it is worth swapping them for the...

    I only have one cable between rooms and it's cat 5 and likely always will be, getting under my house is not for the faint of heart. For short runs and gb speeds there is no advantage you will notice.
